Engine problems disrupt crossings
YARMOUTH — A spokesperson for Bay Ferries says engine manufacturer MTU “responded immediately and has been working diligently” with the company to assess a problem with one of the four main engines of the Cat ferry, and to identify options to get the engine back into working order.
“On June 28, Bay Ferries crew identified a failure in the Cat’s starboard outer main engine,” said Rhonda Latter, manager, human resources and corporate services. “At this point, we don’t expect to have additional details in terms of the repair timeframe until later in the week. In the meantime, the Cat continues to serve our passengers safely on a modified schedule between Portland, Maine, and Yarmouth, Nova Scotia,” she said.
